I had a lot to do in Rome today, many errands. I won’t bore you with them. Most of you want to know what I ate, anyway. I made breakfast in my own place: eggs over easy with prosciutto in the pan and a dollop of cream with gorgonzola on toasts with lots of really strong coffee.
Lunch… meh… nothing to say.
Now for the rest of the day….
… tonight I met a couple priest friends for supper at one of my favorite places in Rome.
We started with mozzarella… I haven’t found better mozzarella in Rome… with hand cut prosciutto.
This stuff oozes and moos.
The first bottle. Sagrantino is a favorite of mine.
Scampi… grilled. Think of really big crayfish, split in half lengthwise, and put over flames with herbs and oil and lemon.
At some restaurants, these come out like Pirelli products. Not so here. They were properly grilled, but like wonderful scampi butter.
Dessert was nothing more than their own biscotti and some amaro.
I have a hobby: I take photos of old “no littering” signs. This, however, is not quite that! Look carefully. Perhaps some of you will want to have a stab at translating it.
The conference pretty much concluded today. However, the conference collectively issued a STATEMENT.
More on that when I can post the text and comment.
Meanwhile, thank you, readers, for supper!
